Liz Ritchie obtained her Ph.D. from Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. She is an Associate Professor in the School of Physical, Environmental, and Mathematical Sciences, and is the Director of Academic Programs, and the Deputy Director for the Sino-Australian Research Centre of Coastal Management at UNSW Canbarra (located at ADFA), Australia. A/Prof. Ritchie’s broad research interests are tropical cyclones, tropical meteorology, extreme weather and climate impacts on societies.

For Future Research Students: Ph.D. scholarships of $35,000 (AUD) are available for high-achieving students (H1/High Distinction in their UG program and/or have completed a Masters by Research) in tropical cyclones, climate, societal impacts, remote sensing, and meteorological modelling under A/Prof Ritchie's supervision. if you are interested contact me at E.Ritchie@adfa.edu.au.

Research: Physical understanding, estimation, and prediction of tropical cyclogenesis, tropical cyclone structure and intensity change, the extratropical transition of tropical cyclones and their downstream impacts, and tropical cyclone landfall impacts on natural environments and societies. Climate and environmental impacts on extreme weather behaviour. Weather Phenomena. Tropical cyclone storm surge and sedimentation from fresh-water inundation.

Applied Research Areas: Remote sensing detection, estimation, and prediction of tropical cyclones and other extreme weather.
